Fort Worth Walk to end Alzheimer’s is this Saturday
The Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research, and the one in Fort Worth Walk is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 27 at Panther Island Pavilion.
Participants will learn more about Alzheimer’s disease, advocacy opportunities, clinical studies enrollment and support programs and services.
Attendees have the opportunity to select a pinwheel flower as a memento and participate in a Promise Garden Ceremony pledging commitment to continue to remember, honor, care and fight to end Alzheimer’s disease. Participants are encouraged to take part in a most memorable team T-shirt contest after the walk.
The community has raised nearly 75 percent of a $400,000 goal contributing to local care, support and research efforts for those impacted by Alzheimer’s, the organization said in a news release.
